Calling all tuna fans! There’s something about a fresh, cold, lemony tuna salad that is so refreshing. If you like tuna, you know that it’s versatile—tuna melt, tuna casserole, with chips and veggies, or just by itself.
We like to serve our tuna in little cucumber boats—a bit of a nautical ode to our aquatic protein.
Tuna on its own can be a bit dry. While you can add lots of mayonnaise, we like to substitute some out and use half of an avocado for a healthy fat and unbelievable decadence. We add a few simple spices, mustard, and a squeeze of lemon to round out this recipe.
Carving out your cucumber boats can easily be done with a teaspoon and you have all the crunch and none of the wateriness from the cucumber as a vessel for your tuna salad.
Since this is made in about 10 minutes, it makes for a perfect quick lunch for any remote workers or an easy weekend snack. It is light but filling and packed with flavor.
